Our Top Tips 

Tip 1: High-quality avatars

Having a high-quality image is so important because it features all the best parts of IMVU. When we say high-quality avatars, we’re talking about aesthetics and how your avatar and overall picture look. 

Your photo should include the following:

  • Lighting, color, distinct features
  • Clear features and no glitchy
  • An interesting background 
  • Trendy outfits from our catalog
  • Good image resolution, no pixels, please!
  • Fun accessories like jewelry, hats, scarves, etc.
  • Great hairstyle
  • Good posture and angle of the body, with no disproportionate parts

Your photo can feature just you, a crush or partner, or your besties!

Tip 2: Cool background

Adding a background is so important and gives your photo an environment and a mood. Snap a pic in your fave room or explore one of the hundreds of thousands of themed rooms! Tag your location and tell us where you took the pic.

Tip 3: Add a caption and a hashtag

A picture is worth a thousand words, but a caption helps us know what you’re thinking! By adding a descriptive caption, you are telling a story, motivating us, and allowing us to experience emotion through it. Keep it short and to the point. If you’re posting for a specific campaign, don’t forget to include the hashtag in your caption! 

Here are a few ideas:

  • Add emojis 😃
  • Add a hashtag 
  • Add a quote
  • Make it catchy (something that will keep us reading)
  • Keep it short and sweet 💕

Tip 4: Find Inspiration

Creativity can simply mean thinking outside the box and using your imagination, but we understand being creative can be difficult at times. And that’s why we recommend jumping into any new campaigns we launch, everything from Weekend Outfit Challenges to Moodboards to hosted parties to our monthly themed social events.
